I Took A Couple Of Old Glass Bottles, Some Blue And Green Food Coloring And An iPhone And Just Started Taking Pictures. What Resulted May Just Be A Rare Peek Into A Forbidden Realm.
Feeling bored and a bit antsy for a creative outlet, I decided to play around with photographing water and food coloring. I grabbed a couple of old glass bottles I had laying around and I slowly dropped in blue and green food coloring and contorted myself into all different angles to get the shot I wanted. No after-effects or Photoshop or anything of that kind was used on these photos. They are blurry but I think that adds to their ethereal nature. I see different things each time I look at the photos. There is no right way up to view them. I like to make up stories about what is captured through the “keyhole” into these strange, mystical, eerie, dreamlike worlds. It’s a bit like peering into an alternate reality underwater with all manner of creature and inexplicable objects that cannot be described and should not exist. There are haunting things lurking in the shadows there, too, if you want to see them. It’s a bit like looking into a pond made of mood-ring glass, reflecting back whatever you bring to it. I know I am making them sound much more magnanimous than what they are, and I am being super corny, but I truly enjoyed the process and was quite intrigued with the outcome. I hope you will like them too. I’d be very interested to hear what others see (if anything) and how you interpret them. Thank you for viewing these!
